On the first Friday of every month Mesa Community College has an astronomy night that is open, and free, to the public. It includes a program in the planetarium and telescopes outside for viewing. Friday, December 2, 2011 they will be showing “Tour the Universe with Pink Floyd.”
“This immersive show sets the Universe in motion with the music of Pink Floyd’s iconic album ‘Dark Side of the Moon’. See amazing features of the night sky you never imagined and reach the edge of the visible Universe in style. This music video was developed by students and faculty at Mesa Community College.”
